Remote Desktop mstsc /admin

For some reason back when Vista came out, MS changed the /console switch from /console to /admin for MSTSC.exe which is used to connect to remote desktop sessions.

I find myself using /admin when there are already two users logged on and I can’t get in without knocking someone off.

A friend of mine showed me a nifty trick that I thought was worth sharing.

You can use the /admin switch in the Remote Desktop window itself. You don’t have do go back to the run menu or a cmd PowerShell prompt and run mstsc /console.
